WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING TO DUNE AND DESTROY?
We have reached the thick of desert riding season!
Whether you are headed to the desert for a day trip or a long weekend of riding and camping, good preparation will save you from a lot of hassle. Our friends over at Dune and Destroy roll deep and go big so we asked them to share their top tips for an epic trip to the desert so we can share what the best things to bring to Dune and Destroy are!
These are the things you will always find at the Dune and Destroy campsite:
BELCHING BEAVER “DUNE LIGHT” BEER
No desert trip would be complete without a Dune and Destroy “Dune Light” Lager!
TRAEGER BRAND “TRAEGER PELLETS”
Smoked meat? Say no more!
Most motorhomes and toy haulers have onboard generators, but they are not quiet. The Honda EU3000iS portable generator is powerful enough to power any rig quietly. In eco mode, it can run for 7.2 to 20 hours.
If you’re hanging out in the dunes, you’ll love Site Shade. They make lightweight, durable, and compact shades that are easy to tote to your favorite dune. Easy setup means you’ll have a cool and comfortable shade spot at any outdoor site in hot desert climates.
Campfires are essential when camping in the desert. Be sure to pack enough wood for your entire trip!
Brighten up any campsite with SeeDevil LED balloon lights. They are perfect for hanging out or when you need a lot of light to work on your rigs and prep for the morning.
An entry-level or budget conscious UTV enthusiast will appreciate the powerful VIAIR 300P SXS Portable Air Compressor. An easy-to-read gauge is on top of the unit to monitor tire pressure.
This Milwaukee M18 FUEL impact wrench can deliver 1000 ft–lbs. of fastening torque with just one key. An impressive 1400 ft–lbs. of nut-busting torque.
Make sure that you always have a tool kit handy in case your vehicle breaks down and you can’t get back to camp to fix your ride.
Getting the case of “Swass” (refer to the Urban Dictionary) can be a serious issue while riding in the hot desert all day. Play it safe and pack a fresh set or two of spare undies. Stay fresh and Shreddy in Shreddy “Shredwear”.
HEY DUDES SHOES AND PRP SOCKS
Pit bikes are essential if you want to get from campsite to campsite quickly. There is nothing quite like pulling up on three wheels on a Honda 70.
When you send it too hard, you could lose your heatwave sunglasses. Make sure you always have a spare pair on hand and keep the heat going all day long!
There is no telling when you’ll get stuck or when you’ll run into someone stuck in the sand who could use a hand. A SpeedStrap tow strap or recovery rope is an excellent must have addition to your side-by-side and is easy to store.
FIRST AID KIT
Whether you’re at your campsite or out on the dunes it’s a good idea to always be prepared for emergencies and keep a first aid kit on hand.
